Who needs cute kittens?

Especially when you have Elsa. We pitched the amazing story of Elsa the therapy dog to Global TV this week. They say you need cute kittens for online stories to go viral. I say you have only have to watch Aaron MacArthur’s story to debunk that theory.

Watch Elsa at work and see not only how she is changing the lives of people at GF Strong and other VCH sites, but how she overcame her own struggles to do so. Unconditional love. Selfless dedication. Gosh, I love animals in the work place.
